Our P7s were absolutely delighted to receive their leavers hoodies this afternoon! We can’t believe they are heading into their final term at Milton of Leys … lots of exciting activities for them to look forward to next term including their outdoor residential trip to Crieff, transition visits to Millburn and planning their leaving assembly!
It is so lovely when children come up to share some of the work that they are very proud of. Today, Ross from P6 came to share a story he has been working on in class. I was blown away by the descriptive vocabulary that he used. Keep up the hard work, Ross!
Well done to Emily and Hannah from P6 who took part in the Inverness 5km run on Sunday 12th March. The girls were delighted that they each achieved a ‘Personal Best’. Keep up the hard work girls!
We were also delighted to hear that Elle, also from P6, received awards in her recent Karate competition. She received a silver for her ‘Team Kata’, silver in the ‘Single Kata’ and a bronze in her ‘Kickmaster’. Well done Elle!
What a fantastic celebration assembly we had this afternoon!
It was great to be able to share the success of our cross country teams that took part in the McRobert Cup last week with the whole school.
We had our P6 and P3 classes winning our ‘Cloakroom of the Week’ awards for being respectful to our school environment by keeping their cloakrooms nice and tidy.
Our House Captains introduced the ‘House Afternoon’ that will be taking place on Wednesday afternoon. The House Captains will be leading a fun filled Easter themed afternoon where children will be awarded house points for following our school rules of being, ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’.
And finally we revealed our first winners of our ‘Pineapple of Destiny’ for earning the most Moley Mole tokens in the last week. This is a new award that has been created to celebrate success of children who are following our school expectations, ‘The Ways of the Leys’. As a school, we will be focussing on 1 expectation for 28 days that children will be awarded for by receiving a Moley Mole token. This token will then be collected in their own classes’ money box. During our Monday assemblies, the Pupil Senior Leadership team count up all the tokens that have been received for each class and the winners are announced during assembly. Our focus for the first 28 days has been ‘Marvellous Moving’ and it has been fantastic to see the marvellous moving being modelled around the school from children in P1 all the way up to P7! The winning class will win the ‘Pineapple of Destiny’ trophy for the week and be rewarded with 15 mins of additional playtime for one day that week. We are delighted to announce that this week’s winner’s were Primary 3!
Our neighbours at the Co-op have offered to run an Easter Egg competition for us. All pupils are invited to enter and the Co-op will choose some winners. There will be Easter Eggs for the winners and some of the entries will be displayed in the window at the coop. Pupils will be given time in class to design, and colour, an Easter egg on A4 paper – but we wanted to share with all of you at home just in case some of the pupils wanted to create a design at home where they might have more time. All entries need to have the pupils name and class clearly written. All entries are to be with Ms Ross at the end of the school day on Wednesday.
